Dolce&Gabbana parade with the high Florentine craftsmanship
We reveal the behind the scenes of the great Florentine event in the sign of fashion, from 2 to 4 September
"The Renaissance has always meant for us the extraordinary, pure creativity, manual skill of the highest level, as well as love for Italy, art and handmade have always been the cornerstones of our work.
A few days from the maxi event in Florence signed Dolce & Gabbana, from September 2 to 3, we present what is hidden inside the fascinating world of the international brand, which has chosen the Florentine artisan excellence for the presentation of their collections High Tailoring for men and High Fashion for women.
The main intent of the project was to understand and respect the identity and specificity of each individual artisan involved, 38 in all, bringing his creations in the spotlight of an international audience. Among the artisans involved: the silver of Brandimarte, the glass of Moleria Locchi, Bianco Bianchi, Nerdi Orafi, the prints of the Hippogriff, Paolo Penko, Scarpelli Mosaici, Pestelli Creazioni, Giusto Manetti Battiloro, Tommaso De Carlo decorator and Taf Ricami Firenze.
Precisely for this reason no work was commissioned, but the designers worked in total sharing with the artisans, visiting our Florence shortly after the lockdown and the stores that dot the city and touching their artifacts.
From 2 to 3 September in fact the city will be the scene of an important calendar of events and a special project that directly involves local artisans.
The Renaissance and Rebirth', this is the title of the event, will begin on September 2 with a parade dedicated to men in Palazzo Vecchio, in the Salone del Cinquecento, the most important hall of the Palace decorated with frescoes by Vasari.
Unique and extraordinary pieces that will be accompanied by accessories and objects made by artisan workshops.

The calendar of events will continue the following days in the wonderful Italian garden of Villa Bardini, with its Baroque staircase and its unique view of Florence, and will end at the Antinori Cellars.
